J. S. Bach, Biber,Marini, Corelli: four leading figuresof Baroquemusic that no one would associate with the harp. However, they worked in environments where there is ample evidence that harpists were active, and where a solo harp repertory certainly existed, even if it wasnever written down.

On their previous Supraphon recordings (SU 4185 - Musica per arpa, SU 4188 - Vivaldi, Telemann, Bach, SU 4121 - Telemann, Britten ad.), harpist Kateřina Englichová and oboist Vilém Veverka sufficiently proved their outstanding performance qualities as well as informed interest in such mutually remote music worlds as the Baroque and the 20th century modernism.

One of the most original features of the Sonatas for violin and piano BWV 1014-1019 is the imagination shown by Johann Sebastian Bach in harmonic, melodic and contrapuntal terms. The pianist’s right hand and the violin must constantly answer each other, while the basso continuo is entrusted to the pianist’s left hand. The exceptional degree of invention to be found in this musical dialogue – a felicitous harmony between melody and counterpoint – irremediably excludes any form of excessive soliloquising.

Mari Kimura (木村 まり Kimura Mari) is a Japanese violinist and composer best known for her use of subharmonics, which, achieved through special bowing techniques, allow pitches below the instrument's normal range. She is credited with "introducing" the use of violin subharmonics, which allow a violinist to play a full octave below the low G on the violin without adjusting the tuning of the instrument. Polytopia is her first CD for the Bridge label, and her first created without collaborators.

The life and work of Robert Schumann has a dual characteristic. In immersing oneself in one or the other, we face an almost systematic duality. He himself was aware of this, appearing in both his writings and in his compositions sometimes under the guise of Eusebius, the tender, introverted dreamer, and sometimes as Florestan, the fiery, impassioned fighter. In studying his life and work, one gains the impression that the greatest lucidity and some form of madness stood side by side in him. But as one deepens one’s knowledge of him as a creator and as a man, one realises that what appears to be contradictory is in fact quite cohesive.

These quartets are Juilliard specialties, and anyone wanting to hear this music played with a near ideal combination of virtuosity and humanity need look no further. Carter's quartets are not for the musically faint of heart: they are uncompromisingly thorny, intricate pieces that require lots of intense, dedicated listening. Very few people doubt their seriousness–or even their claims to musical greatness–but just as few people enjoy listening to them. Perhaps this spectacular set will encourage the adventurous to give them a shot. They're worth the time.
